      Stage 18: Gap – Saint Jean-de-Maurienne 176.5 Km

       

      First day in the Alps. Seven passes, above all the mythic col du Glandon (1924 km) with its 24 km climb length and the spectacular "Monvernier" very close to finish. Even without the team leader and best climber Sepulveda, the BSE was able to stay in the first positions with Vachon (picture below) and Périchon, jumping at the 15th place of the Team General Standing.

       

       

      Today’s Friday 24th is from Saint Jean-de-Maurienne to La Toussuire: 138 Km with the “HC” (beyond category) Col de la Crox de Fer and the final ramp to the arrival at La Toussuire
